Daily Chess Puzzle

January 14, 2020

Today’s problem is from an old edition of Chess Magazine. I don’t know which one, because, as is my habit, from time to time I photocopy a page to solve on walks or on trains etc; and my copy doesn’t show the magazine date.

As is my custom, I only say which side is to play: and not giving an idea if the move wins or otherwise, unless on occasion I think signposting would be helpful. Instead, the problems are posed with the instruction to decide what you would play, as in a game.

 

Black to play

Adams Michael - Kramnik Vladimir (71.Kc2)

M Adams v V Kramnik, St Petersburg 1/5/2013

 

Solution

1…Rg3! and the game is over: if the N takes the rook, 2…fg and the pawns are unstoppable.

Adams Michael - Kramnik Vladimir (71...Rg3!)

FEN

8/8/8/5Rpk/4Np1p/3r4/2K5/8 b – – 0 71
